I have a problem with men who wear wigs; not so much with entertainers who do so, but very much so with politicians and businessmen and others who want to be taken seriously. I sometimes think half the men in congress wear wigs. It bothers me because choosing to wear a wig indicates a fundamental dishonesty. It also suggests that the wig wearer is uncomfortable with the truth of who he is. A person who would lie about his hair would lie about anything. And, most men's wigs are so bad and so obviously fake hair that they make the wearer look like a clown. Don't wig wearing politicians have mirrors? Or, are the completely dependent on others' willingness to suspend disbelief? Or, do they actually believe that perception is reality?
Anyway, I think the current clown prince of politics, Rick Santorum, is a wig wearing fool who, if elected will satisfy the most cynical, darkest, most perverse side of my sense of humor. In that sense, electing George Bush II was hilarious but Santorum will be an absolute wig wearing gut buster. (I would give anything for a reporter who went around asking politicians if their hair was real or a wig. Makes me yearn for the genius of Stuttering John .)
The few remaining honest bald guys among us will have little option but to hold our sides and roar ourselves into oblivion as America becomes a clown festival featuring delusional, wrinkled old guys wearing young hair while spitting out a slush of hate tinged racism, sexism, homophobia, anti sex, fear mongering fundamental christian inspired slogans.
